Ever wondered how Honda's 209 km/h lawnmower will stack up on a track, against a real car?

Powered by a 109hp 1.0-liter Honda VTR Firestorm motorcycle engine, the Mean Mower hits 60 mph (96km/h) from standstill in 4 seconds.

Auto Express wanted to see if it could perform well against the Honda Yuasa Racing Civic BTCC car.

Powered by a 2.0-liter engine with over 300 horsepower, the Civic reaches a top speed of 160 mph (257 km/h). The lawnmower had a 40-second head start to see if the Civic could compete.
